It’s possible I have lyme (I haven’t been diagnosed yet). I was bit a month ago. I am nursing a 10-month-old. Which herbs can I safely take while breastfeeding and are there any herbs that will help protect the baby or do I just assume the baby is going to come down with it? Would the dosages for me be the same as the ones in your book?
Please check the contraindications in my book Healing Lyme, most herbs will pass through your body in the breast milk. I would highly suggest you immediately begin taking astragalus—it is very safe. Take 1000-4000 mg 3x daily. Cat’s claw is good at this point as well as low-dosing knotweed (resveratrol) with 1 capsule 3x daily.
